Jotun signs 42 vessel HPS contract with Wallenius Wilhelmsen

Jotun has signed an agreement with Wallenius Wilhelmsen to provide its Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) anti-fouling coating system across 42 vessels in the leading shipowner’s advanced RoRo fleet.

HPS combines premium SeaQuantum X200 antifouling with technical and digital solutions to accurately measure hull performance. The antifouling works to increase vessel efficiency, cut fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions.

By utilising HPS across its fleet Wallenius Wilhelmsen will have a powerful tool to optimize environmental performance and deliver enhanced stakeholder value.

“This is a major contract with a true global leader within this industry niche,” comments Ulf Skovli, Regional Sales Director, Jotun Marine Scandinavia. “Wallenius Wilhelmsen is a respected shipowner and operator that is known for its commitment to innovation, optimal operational standards and environmental care. “It’s therefore hugely gratifying that it has chosen Jotun as ‘solutions partner’ for the future, and very pleasing to see the team’s faith in the powerful benefits of the HPS offering,” comments Skovli. 

“Working together we will be able to optimize hull performance and help Wallenius Wilhelmsen fully comply with global regulations and targets, while meeting its own stringent environmental objectives. This is a high quality solution for a high quality shipping company. We see it as a great match and look forward to building a strong working relationship,” comments Gunhild Tveitan, Business Development Manager Scandinavia.

Fouling is a key contributor to the spread of invasive species across marine ecosystems and a major cause of hull inefficiency, leading to increased fuel consumption and emissions. Studies have suggested that the fuel consumption of the world fleet could be reduced by up to 20% if all vessels were kept fouling free.

 “As a company we are focused on enhancing sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of our operations – maintaining clean hulls is a key enabler for that,” explains Geir Fagerheim, SVP Marine Operations, Wallenius Wilhelmsen. “With HPS we can not only achieve this objective, but we also open a digital window onto how hull condition affects fleet-wide performance, efficiency and emissions, creating a culture of transparency and accountability.

“We believe this kind of partnership can be an important platform for building an increasingly sustainable shipping industry, helping inform better decision making and creating new solutions for the future. We are excited to get started on that journey with Jotun.”
